Xavier Villaurrutia Award

The Xavier Villaurrutia Award (Premio Xavier Villaurrutia) is a prestigious literary prize given in Mexico, to a Latin American writer published in Mexico. Founded in 1955, it was named in memory of Xavier Villaurrutia.

Multiple awards have been given in some years. No award was made in 1968, when it was suspended in recognition of the imprisonment of José Revueltas who had won the award in 1967.
